A "-walla" is someone who is involved with a particular activity. So while you may not dedicate your life to becoming a "yogi", anyone can become a yogawalla.
The Yogawalla Mission
I hate the term yogi. It either implies you're an enlightenmen- aspiring monk who lives on a remote mountaintop or, worse, it means you're a New-Agey hipster who thinks "balancing your chakras" is the key to solving all your problems.
If you're like me, you're neither of those things. You're someone who thinks that doing yoga might help make life a little easier: whether it's being able to bend over enough to tie your shoelaces, manage your stress-related health issues or to set clearer boundaries with your mother. "-walla" is just the Hindi suffix for someone who is involved with a particular activity. You're not a yogi, but a YOGAWALLA.
I created Yogawalla NYC so that I could bring my clients a practical, no-nonsense approach to applying the tools of yoga not just to a session, but to everyday life.
I have never been an athlete. When I first started yoga, I didn't have strength or flexibility. I couldn't hold a plank or touch my toes. What I did have was back pain from a desk job, stress from a fast-paced, NYC lifestyle, psoriasis and lots of family drama. Yoga provided me the tools to lead a healthier, easier life; one where I prioritized my well-being so everything else could fall into place. I want to deliver these tools to you in a way that makes sense for modern life. No acrobatics. No mystical bullshit. Just useful, practical stuff.
